Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year, it marks the beginning of the holiday season, and I love cooking, planning the meal and decorating the house. There’s a lot going on as we head into the holiday break. This year, it looks like we’ll have lots to celebrate. Enjoy your turkey, hug your family and friends, and get ready for some great football this weekend!
